"Knut Hamsun's writing is magical, his sentences are glowing, he could write about anything and make it alive." --Karl Ove Knausgaard, The New York Times Book Review

"The whole modern school of fiction in the twentieth century stems from Hamsun." --Isaac Bashevis Singer

"The classic novel of humiliation, even beyond Dostoyevsky . . . Lyngstad's translation restores to the English-speaking reader one of the cold summits in modern prose literature." --George Steiner
